Japan invests record defense budget in response to threats from China

Mon Dec 21, 2020 4:40 am


The Japanese government approved a record high of 5.34 trillion yen ($ 5.17 billion) in defense budgets for fiscal year 2021 as Japan is developing new missiles capable of attacking สล็อตxo enemy warships from outside range. Amid the expansion of China's maritime power
The draft budget, a 0.5% increase from FY2020, covers expenses related to US military bases in Japan. And it is a record seven years in a row as Japan is upgrading its ability to tackle North Korea's missiles and nukes. And expanding China's maritime power

Japan's Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi said Japan needs to "respond" to China's growing maritime power expansion around Japan's southwestern islands. As well as to maintain the security of the self-defense forces, missiles are important in protecting the islands.

However, the missile will take five years to develop as the ministry will expand the firing range of the missile that is currently under development. Which is likely to shoot up to 900 kilometers

The ministry also allocated a budget to build two Aegis anti-missile destroyers.
